Quality assurance and safeguarding
Educational psychologists are regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council who publish guidance on conduct and ethics to which I must adhere and standards of proficiency that I must meet.
The HCPC also conducts regular, random audits of my CPD to ensure that I continue to meet the standards required to practise as a psychologist.
I have Enhanced DBS clearance and I subscribe to the online DBS update service which allows checks to be made on the current status of my DBS certificate and removes any need for concern that my clearance status may have changed since my certificate was issued.
Registration with the Information Commissioner's Office is mandatory for the work that I do.
I have the following professional memberships and registrations:
- Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society
- Registered with the Health and Care Professions Council as a practitioner psychologist
- Association of Educational Psychologists
- Registered under the Data Protection Act with the Information Commissioner's Office
- Compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (2016) and the subsequent UK Data Protection Bill (2018)
All the information I collect from you will be managed with great concern for privacy and confidentiality and in accordance with current professional and legal standards. Although the security of your personal data has continuously been addressed by reference to the British Psychological Society’s (BPS) Code of Conduct and the Health & Care Professionals (HPCP) Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics, the way I handle personal information has been strengthened and made more transparent by the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements.

The GDPR requires me to identify the legal basis upon which I process your personal data. I shall proceed with your assessment and all associated activity on the basis of (a) my contract with you and (b) my legitimate interest to hold and process your personal data.
I have Professional Indemnity Cover
